A Toronto radio station has decided to use the troublesome news involving Demi Lovato today for good and help those who are upset heal.
After reports broke that the 25-year-old singer was in the hospital after overdosing on heroin, many people were taken back. Lovato was previously six years sober and had always been very vocal about suffering from addiction and depression in the past.
Now Hit 93 is using this tragic time, both in Toronto and for Lovato, to spend an hour listening to the artist's music commercial free to show solidarity with her struggle.
The station announced the news on Twitter at around 6:00 PM that on Tuesday, July 24, they will give a one-hour special at 10:00 PM in honour of Demi Lovato. They said that "music heals" and that "together we can get through this."
Tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET, we’re going to dedicate an hour — commercial free, of course — to Demi Lovato and her music. We believe music heals; together, we can get through this, so we hope you join us and celebrate Lovato’s music and legacy, while we hope for a speedy recovery. pic.twitter.com/npDIb5HrgT— #PrayForDemi | Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) July 24, 2018
While it's not clear if it's solely for Lovato fans who are upset or also the many people in Toronto who have been shaken by the recent mass shooting, it's greatly appreciated by all.
The singer was actually scheduled to play a show in Toronto this Sunday, July 29 at Budweiser Stage. While Lovato is reportedly awake and stable at this time her show has been cancelled.

If you have some free time make sure to tune in and listen. You can stream the free hour of Demi's music on the radio's website if you don't have another way to listen in.
